Our two hero products will have your skin summer soft no matter what the season. Whether dehydrated from too much sun, or too much time in central heating.
An amazing ritual is to take a warm shower or bath and melt the Idan oil in the warm water. Enjoy the warming aphrodisiac qualities of the Tuberose as you massage into clean damp skin, head to toe. (Skin absorbs more moisture when it is not fully dry.) When skin is dry take a small scoop of Shea butter and massage into problem areas like feet, cracked heels, elbows and knees. Wrap yourself in a fluffy robe and some cotton socks and you will wake up feeling brand new. Repeat weekly.
IVORY SHEA BUTTER (120ml)
Raw. One ingredient. Ethically sourced. Fragrance-Free. Vegan
Shea butter is the ultimate African beauty secret. Used for centuries by women to protect and regenerate the skin, its potency lies in its naturally high concentration of A and E.
A multi-purpose moisturiser for all skin types, it can be used on dry areas, stretch marks, scars, as a nappy balm, or as a base for making your own natural cosmetics.
Shea Butter is known for its high content of fatty acids and its naturally occurring content of Vitamins A and E. Traditionally used as a “cure all” balm and with women in Africa using it on everything from stretch marks and scars to babies' bums. An excellent natural alternative to petroleum jelly. All you need is a small amount, let it melt between your hands and apply everywhere - body, face, feet, and hands.

IDAN OIL (100ml)
Idan is the Yoruba word for magic, which is the only word to describe our sublime moisturising oil. Made with natural, cold pressed coconut oil into which a Tuberose flower has been immersed, ensuring the wonderful scent of this night-blooming flower is absorbed naturally into the oil by a traditional African process of enfleurage.
As well as smelling divine, Tuberose has naturally warming and aphrodisiac qualities. We love to use this for absolutely everything a body oil to leave-in hair conditioner, or if we are feeling really indulgent, slathering it head to toe before bed and rinsing off in the morning for truly silky fragranced skin. Some customers have even been known to decant it and use it as a solid perfume. Let us know what new uses you discover!

The set arrived beautifully packaged and the postcard has pride of place on our fridge now. This was a 60th birthday present for my mum and she couldn’t be happier. She loves the smell of the oil. Very luxurious. Looking forward to purchasing more from you in the future!
I’m so happy to have finally purchased this set. I add the oil in the shower and then layer up the Shea butter on very dry areas. I even use it as a lip balm and it smells amazing.
The products are of high quality and i just fell in love with the smell! I can recommend it to everyone who loves to feel soft and tender the day until the evening.
Smell is lovely and my skin is so silky soft. Planning to reorder and try additional products. This will definitely be a staple for me from now on.
